kenney's been a big city boy for most of his life, and i can fully believe that he's enough of an incredible dipshit to not realize that the average rural albertan's idea of "personal freedom" doesn't stop at "don't have to pay property tax" but rather runs up all the way to "choke and die on my own sputum if i want to"

The police chief says the province has instructed them not to fine people for breaking public health laws. But the cops are seeking tips on the real criminals!

Great, BC has prioritized vaccines for pregnant women!

quote:

To book a vaccine, people who are pregnant can:

register at gov.bc.ca/getvaccinated if they have not done so already,
phone 1 833 838-2323 and identify as being pregnant. Online booking for pregnant people is not available.

Oh

quote:

I'm pregnant and need to book my vaccine appointment

To book a vaccine appointment, you must:

Register online or by phone using your Personal Health Number. If you are already registered, you don't have to register again
Call 1-833-838-2323 and self-identify as a pregnant person. The phone agent will book you an appointment

Oh

As far as I can tell the only difference is that if you are 16-29 and pregnant you can maybe get a shot in 3 months instead of 4.

This r/vancouver/ thread and this one would have us believe pregnant people who call in can book appointments only a few days out and, if shot down, call back and get a more immediate result. Believe one of the daily cases threads last week had anecdotes to that effect too.

I mean, unless you/someone you know has tried a few times and found out otherwise - geography may matter.

I will try this tomorrow. Weird that they explicitly say not to phone in if you've already registered.

update: She is booked for the 12th Phone registration was very smooth, didn't even wait in a queue.

Bill C-10 is a disgrace
Contributed - May 5, 2021 / 4:46 pm


On May 3, 2021, Rex Murphy exposed the Liberals Bill C-10 agenda to control social media. C-10, and other Bills Liberals have introduced, empowers them to regulate and censor what we say or believe.

The Bill is a communist document. The PM and his cabinet should resign for presenting it.

Recently, a gentleman suggested to me that communism in Eastern European countries of the 1930s - 1940s is not the same communism of today. I disagree.

From 1962 1967, I lived near the East/West German border. We were continuously on the lookout for surprise attacks from East German, Russian, Chinese or other communist regimes.

Along the border, Eastern European citizens risked crossing no-go zones that were fenced with many miles of barbed wire/walls to prevent people from escaping communist lands.

They did not flee into communist controlled countries. They fled from being censored, fined, jailed or cancelled for their beliefs as Trudeau is empowering himself to do to us with C-10.

People sought escape to the West for freedom, not censorship! Individuals and families sacrificed their lives in the attempt to escape communist tyranny.

Their bodies hung from barbed wire or barricaded walls, riddled with bullets of communist soldiers who shot them for seeking freedom in the West where they could speak freely.

Communism is the same today. Hundreds of thousands, even millions, make their way to freedom in the West, not to the East ruled by dictators and villains.

I submit that the communism of today is the same wretched and evil system it has always been, as are those who deceptively seek to control us.

Brutality is the communist way to forcibly keep citizens in control. Secret atrocities are now historical facts. That is the reality of Communism.

It created disasters in Russia, China, North Korea and every country where its evil footprint appeared.

It took only ten years to ruin Venezuela in our day. Hong Kong is on its way. It will repeat with a vengeance in Canada if we allow it under Trudeau.

Trudeau shut down political debate on C-10 but not his plan to control Canadians.

Dozens of lying politicians and dictators have convinced me that the tyrannical socialist governments defeated in the Cold War are the same lying demagogues seeking power today, with the same capacity to censure, lockdown, deceive, control and brutalize citizens that elect and trust them by introducing Bills like C-10.

Hey, if Rex Murphy said it, it must be true.

These are exactly the same people who thought bill c-16 would get three generations of their family sent to the gulags if they accidentally misgender someone one time.

I wish Trudeau was even an eighth as left-wing as these people imagine him to be. Trudeau could announce a policy of dekulakization tomorrow and the right wing talking points would be identical.

I always wondered what the mind of a Rex Murphy fan would be like. Turns out its pretty much exactly what youd expect.

Communists and their filthy communism!

My partner sometimes is on juries deciding who gets some of these grants and if you are any kind of visible minority now is the time to make bank on your awful art because these things are run by the worst kinds of liberals who basically add up oppression points like in that fake Tumblr meme that conservatives would pass around to make themselves mad

I don't know what perler art is but maybe, it can take a few hours to write up your proposal and provide samples of work and stuff so if it has some actual artistic merit and you don't think you're wasting your time go ahead.

I do know that sometimes they have more money to give out than applicants so they give it to literally everybody.
